Long-term anticoagulation after first unprovoked VTE associated with considerable bleeding risk

Results from a systematic review and meta-analysis provide a framework for clinicians and patients to balance the benefits and harms of extended anticoagulation for unprovoked venous thromboembolism (VTE).

Patients with atrial fibrillation likely to underestimate bleeding risks of anticoagulants

Women were significantly less likely than men to underestimate their bleeding risk, and a history of bleeding was associated with a threefold increased likelihood of inaccurate perception of bleeding risk, according to a study of atrial fibrillation patients.

Intervention targeting clinicians did not increase anticoagulation use in patients with afib

Electronic messaging and academic detailing improved clinicians' comfort with prescribing anticoagulation in certain situations, but rates of appropriate anticoagulation for atrial fibrillation did not change significantly, a trial found.

Use of warfarin down, DOACs up in commercially insured patients with cirrhosis, nonvalvular afib

While more than half of eligible patients with cirrhosis and concurrent nonvalvular atrial fibrillation did not receive anticoagulation between 2012 and 2019, use of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) increased substantially during that time, a recent study found.

Risk of re-infection, benefits of anticoagulation, cause of sex differences among COVID-19 research

Researchers published evidence of re-infection with SARS-CoV-2, anticoagulation was associated with halved inpatient mortality, recommendations were made on pulmonary embolism in COVID-19, and a study attributed differences in men's and women's outcomes to T cells.

COVID-19 research focused on anticoagulation, vaccine-induced thrombocytopenia

Two new studies support prophylactic, rather than therapeutic, anticoagulation for COVID-19 patients, and case reports provide more information about vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia.

Non-vitamin K oral anticoagulants appear superior to vitamin K antagonists in early-stage CKD

An accompanying editorial said that the current review supports a superior benefit profile of non-vitamin K oral anticoagulants (NOACs) in patients with atrial fibrillation and early-stage chronic kidney disease (CKD).

Anticoagulation not superior to placebo for calf DVT in low-risk patients, may increase bleeding risk

The randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial examined a composite measure of extension of calf deep venous thrombosis (DVT) to proximal veins, contralateral proximal DVT, and symptomatic pulmonary embolism in a modified intention-to-treat population.
